Chapter 153: Nothing in the Wen Family Belongs to You
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Back when Xinya was taken away, he was filled with grief and frustration, with nowhere to let them out. The last request made by Yunyao at her deathbed weighed heavily on his mind, and the only thing he could think of was the skinny body of his granddaughter. Having lost his mind, he searched everywhere for Xinya.
It was during then that Haowen and Ning Shuqian had their marriage licensed. He neither had the energy left to stop Haowen nor to prevent Ning Shuqian from bringing the daughter from her previous marriage into the family.
He had a huge fight with Haowen over this. However, he softened after seeing the scrawny little baby in the arms of Ning Shuqian who reminded him of his lost granddaughter, and Haowen then registered Wen Yuya under the Wen Family discreetly. Although he was against it, he did not stop them.
Old Mr. Wen raised his eyebrows at the sight of the young girl kneeling in front of him, slapping herself continuously. Her eyes were brimming with tears which masked her true feelings, and being unable to read her made him uneasy.
Every hit of hers landed cleanly and sharply. She was so determined that she had forgotten her pride, shame, and even senses, unwilling to stop until she achieved her goal.
At that moment, he found himself unable to see through this young girl who was only 15 years old!
He scrunched his forehead, revealing the dozens of lines of wrinkles on his face. In the blink of an eye, he looked as if he had aged another five years.
Suddenly, he started feeling some guilt. The only time he ever hesitated in his life, he allowed Wen Yuya, this hidden threat, to lurk around.
With this in mind, there was no way he could allow Wen Yuya to stay. “Old Yu, get someone to take her away. I never want to see her again!”
Old Yu, the caretaker of the Wen Family, immediately went to the backyard to get someone.
Ning Shuqian stumbled towards Old Mr. Wen in a hurry and kneeled down. “Father, no matter what, Yuya has been staying in the Wen Family for 15 years, and she has always regarded all of you as her true relatives. Please don’t kick her out of the Wen Family, father. I beg you…”
Just then, two servants entered the living room and grabbed Wen Yuya on both sides, preparing to drag her away. Out of nowhere, Wen Yuya mustered the strength to put up a struggle, all the while glaring at Wen Xinya with her bloodshot eyes. However, the Wen Xinya that could be seen from the reflection of her eyes remained cold and unmoved. “Let go of me! Father has not even agreed to kick me out of the family, who do you think you are to chase me away? Who do you think you are… Father would never toss me aside… Hahahaha… I’m still the child of the Wen Family! I will forever be! Don’t even think about throwing me out.”
The sound of her screaming like a maniac sent a chill down everybody’s backs. Wen Xinya raised her brows in thought. There was something really off about Wen Yuya.
A sense of bad feeling rose in her.
Old Mr. Wen continued coldly, “Even Haowen cannot stop me from kicking you out of the family. Old Yu, go to the local police station and cancel her account. She shall never be called a Wen again. Also, order a plane ticket to America for tomorrow. I don’t ever want to see her again.”
Old Yu nodded and left the living room.
However, Wen Yuya ran towards him and pulled his arm. “No, father has not agreed. You’re not allowed to kick me out!” She cried out in rage.
Ning Shuqian’s legs gave out. She collapsed into a pile on the floor and cried. “Father, it’s enough that you are kicking Yuya out of the Wen Family, why are you even sending her to America? She’s only 15 years old, still a child. Sending her far away from her home, how can you be this cruel?”
Old Mr. Wen scoffed. “You place a crown on your own child while you frown upon other people’s children. Since you are aware of how cruel this is, back then, why did you plant the idea in Haowen’s head to send Xinya overseas? Have you considered then that she was only a child of 15 years old, and how pitiful it would be for her to be far away from her home?”
Ning Shuqian stood there tongue-tied for a moment before she cried flusteredly. “Father, I did no such thing, that was not me! Haowen had the thought to send Xinya overseas because of all the rumors he heard about her in his circle, and he was worried that Xinya would ruin the reputation of the Wen Family.”
Old Mr. Wen glared at her as if he were looking straight into her soul, and said, “I wonder how Haowen would feel after hearing these words!”
With that said, Ning Shuqian stood there speechless, unable to utter a single response.
Wen Xinya saw the cold and unfeeling look in her grandpa’s eyes. They were the same look he had back when he announced that he was cutting all ties with her on the news!
Grandpa must have seen the newspaper today and saw through all the things done by Wen Yuya during Zhou Tianyu’s banquet. He must have also come to the realization that Wen Yuya had locked Xinya in the toilet during her own homecoming party, and even scolded her in front of him. Knowing these, he was enraged.
One thing led to another, and this was the result.
Old Yu had already freed himself of Wen Yuya’s grasp and left the living room with haste.
Wen Yuya collapsed on the floor. “Grandpa, why are you so heartless to me. What on earth did I do wrong? Why have you never treated me as your real granddaughter even though I saw you as my true family? Why? Why?”
“Because you were never a granddaughter of the Wen Family!” Old Mr. Wen replied coldly.
Bam! The words knocked her senses back into her, and she remained on the floor motionlessly. Out of the blue, her gaze turned towards Wen Xinya, and she started screaming hysterically. “Wen Xinya, it’s you! It must be you! You told grandpa to kick me out of the Wen Family. It’s all your fault… all your fault…”
Wen Xinya raised her head suddenly and met her gaze. She stared at her with calmness and indifference, sending a chill down her back. “Why is it my fault?”
The hysterical Wen Yuya was a stark contrast to the calm Wen Xinya. She stared intently with hatred into the cold eyes of Xinya. Clear contempt could be seen on Xinya’s face, and she looked condescendingly at her while sitting on her high pedestal.
She had a sudden outburst and screamed. “Why did you come back to the Wen Family? You should’ve stayed as a hooligan on the streets, why must you come back and take away everything that belongs to me? I hate you… I hate you!”
“Nothing in the Wen Family belongs to you, not even the family name. It was out of charity that the Wen Family even gave you anything. However, you started bearing unspeakable thoughts because you took it as if everything rightfully belongs to you. You are the one who ruined yourself.” Wen Xinya replied sternly, with not a shred of empathy for her.
Those words cut her like knives, stabbing her and turning her body into a mangled pool of flesh and blood. Out of rage, she rushed towards Xinya with every intention to rip her mouth apart and to take her down from her high throne.
Ning Shuqian stopped her immediately, afraid that she would spout out the wrong words in the heat of anger. “Yuya, come to the room with mother…”
As she spoke, she forcefully dragged Wen Yuya out of the living room.
Old Mr. Wen watched Wen Yuya leave with a solemn look on his face. “The way she hates you so much, I’m getting a bad feeling about her. You have to be careful in the future.”
Wen Xinya nodded. “I will be careful, Grandpa!”
